The hotel's location is perfect for young travellers- very close to Dam Square which seems to be the centre of the city. Most of the tourist points are within walking distance of the hotel and it also has good pubs and restaurants just around the corner.

We loved this hotel. It is situated in the perfect spot for exploring the city, a few minutes away from Dam Square, but in a relatively quiet area. We did not have a canal side room but quite enjoyed looking out over the neighbours' roof terraces. Our room was small but very clean and comfortable. When we arrived we had... More

We booked this hotel while on our holiday travels and were a bit apprehensive at some of the negative reviews. Well, our fears were allayed pretty quickly. Front office staff were very friendly and greeted us with a smile every morning and whenever we came back from our daily travels. The room was a good size allowing us to stretch... More

Small hotel with view on canal. Located on quiet street, but still within walking distance of main attractions. Easy 20min walk to Centraal Station. Our family of 4 stayed in the family room that is split over two levels, which was comfortable and spacious enough. But not recommended for people with walking disabilities, because you have to use 2 sets... More

We spent 3 nights in amsterdam and we stayed in this hotel. The hotel is very closed to the main attractions and next to the canal. The view is beautiful during sunset time, you can see it from the canal. The service was good and the room is clean. It's a safe area!

I was visiting Amsterdam for 4 nights and was hard pressed to find something which was centrally located and which wasn't exorbitantly priced. After searching for hotels online for a long time, I finally decided to stay at the Times hotel. Was a bit nervous about it as it was an instinctive decision. My flight arrived at 7 am and... More

This hotel is located on a canal which is short distance from the main attractions but in a quiet location. We were able to walk very easily from the main station. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. They spoke excellent English, as do most of the Dutch. We did not have a canal view room but our room was... More

After a horrendous two night stay at another B&B in Amsterdam, The Times Hotel was a relief to stay at! Gorgeous view over the canal, spacious room filled with beautiful artwork. Staff were friendly and willing to help with anything. A great stay at The Times Hotel, would definitely return.

The pictures on the website doesn't capture reality at all. The rooms are a shoe box and the white sheets are stained and there was grime on the shower head. Disgusting. The air conditioning makes rattling noises, it felt as if I was sleeping next to train tracks. Literally the worse hotel experience ever. It was not worth the money... More

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
